What is the max ram for Lenova M70e 0830 series?

2018-08-31, 18:49 PM

I recenely purchanced one that came with windows 10, previously it was a windows 7. It came with two RAM slots and a 4 GB stick. I can't find out what the true max ram is, is it 4GB or 8GB? Can 8 be installed on this pc? Was 4 the max when it was a windows 7? The Processor is an Intel Core 2 Quad. It's a 64 bit system.

4 GB dimm support may have been added via a BIOS release, I recommend you update to the latest BIOS via CD ISO method only, before trying 4 GB dimms.

You can use a memory test tool like MemTest86 to determine the specs of the existing 4 GB dimm, and then source an additional one with the exact same specs.

I'm so confused lol. If it can support up to 8, how come the set standard is just at 4?

I don't know what a set standard is.  It can support two 4 GB dimms, 8 GB max.  I suspect that a BIOS update during it's lifecycle enabled the use of newer 4 GB dimms (replacing the previous 2 GB dimm max.)  A similar thing happened with the M58.

This appears to be a recurring question.  Perhaps you could let us know what the specs for the existing Dimm is, and what you were able to find to match it.  Ty.

I agree with BiggAl.  ie, 4gb in slot 1, blank in slot 2.

If other users found 4GB in each slot  to work 8GB, I would buy 4GB more.

At that time of sells, at that price, you could not convice a user to buy two 4GB  sticks.
